Some properties of multivariate extreme value distributions and multivariate tail equivalence
Denote byH ak-dimensional extreme value distribution with marginal distributionHi(x)=Λ(x)=exp(−e−x),x∈R1. Then it is proved thatH(x)=Λ(x1)...Λ(xk) for anyx=(x1, ...,xk) ∈Rk, if and only if the equation holds forx=(0,...,0). Next some multivariate extensions of the results by Resnick (1971,J. Appl. Probab.,8, 136–156) on tail equivalence and asymptotic distributions of extremes are established.
